Gemma White secures acquittal for youth defendant in multi-handed rape and indecent images case
15th March 2018
Gemma White acted for the second defendant, aged 16 at the time of the alleged offences, who faced multiple charges of rape and possession of indecent images of a child along with three other co-accused.
The trial lasted several weeks and involved complex matters of law as well as forensic evidence and young and vulnerable witnesses who required careful and sensitive cross examination.
A number of the charges were dismissed at the close of the prosecution case and the jury returned unanimous verdicts of not guilty on the remaining counts in only half an hour.
